The Ooni of Ife, Ooni Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, says the continent of Africa will soon get its house in order and become a major rallying point of leadership for the the entire world.
The Ooni who is on a week working visit to the State of California in USA, stated this on Thursday while addressing the black students of the California state University in Los Angeles during an interactive session organized by the College’s Department of African Languages.
While answering questions from the students, the Ooni described all the black people in America and all over the world as indigenes of Africa who must always work for the greatness of the continent with the philosophy of “one humanity, one source, one race”.
“My children, you may be Americans, you may be Jamaicans, you may be Haitians, you may be Cubans or Brazilians, the truth is that you are all my children from Africa. Africa must progress, you must key into the cultural reawakening mission that will soon positively reposition our continent which is the source of mankind. Imbibe the spirit of one humanity, one source, one race. We were once the leaders of this world and we must get our global leadership back through cultural reawakening.
Everything started from us, bronze age, stone age, cloth technology, all of this started from Africa, we must now begin to say this aloud because they will never talk about it for us. In fact, you must always be proud to say that Africa is the only continent that hasn’t moved an inch from its original location. Also know that over 40% of the resources in this world are in Africa, and if we struggle together as one people, the world will soon begin to gravitate towards Africa for stability and survival”.
